Do you want to embed a Google form in WordPress?
Google Forms are easy to embed anywhere and are particularly useful when you need to share the form on multiple websites. You can get feedback from your customers or audience without having to create and share multiple versions of surveys or questionnaires.
In this article, we will show you how to embed a Google form in WordPress.
Google Forms vs WordPress Form Builders
It is true that WordPress form builders are easier to use. They are integrated into your WordPress site, so you can show users a special offer, accept payments, create custom login forms, user registration forms, and more.
However, sometimes you may need to share a form on different websites, email lists, and platforms so that all form responses are stored at the same location.
In such situations, Google Forms can be an easier option. They are easy to share, mobile-friendly, and get the job done. All responses are stored in your Google Drive, and you can even add collaborators to work on the form responses.
That said, let’s see how you add Google Forms to your WordPress site.

How to Embed a Google Form in WordPress
First, you need to visit the Google Forms website and click the ‘Go to Forms’ button. You will need to create the form you want to embed to begin.
Next, you’ll see different Google Form templates.
Go ahead and select a pre-built template or use the blank template to create your custom form.
Creating a new form in Google Forms is quite simple. First, you need to provide a form title and description, then you can start adding your form fields.
Google’s AI technology automatically selects the correct form field based on the question you ask. If it selects the incorrect field type, then you can manually change it.
You can click on the ‘+’ button in the menu on the right to add a new form field. You can also add images and videos, as well as choose from different question types.
Once you are satisfied with your form, click on the ‘Send’ button to get the embed code.
This will bring up the send form popup where you need to click on the embed tab.
Next, click on the ‘Copy’ link to copy the embed code.
After that, head over to your WordPress site’s admin area and edit the post or page where you want to display the form.
Once you’re in the WordPress content editor, go ahead and add a ‘Custom HTML’ block.
Next, you can simply paste the HTML code in the Custom HTML block.
There is also an option to preview your Google Form in the content editor. Simply click the ‘Preview’ option in the Custom HTML block.
Don’t forget to click on the ‘Publish’ button to save your changes.
Now you can visit your website to see the Google Form embedded and ready for your users to fill out.
